The Quality Forum is committed to improving the quality of health and health care for everyone in Louisiana, whether they have private insurance, government insurance or no insurance at all. The Forum, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is a private, nonprofit organization formed as part of the post-Katrina effort to rebuild the health care system in hurricane-affected areas of the state. The forum focuses on short-term recovery and long-term system redesign. A 13-person volunteer board sets priorities for evidence-based, collaborative initiatives to improve the health of the people of Louisiana. The recognition that things need to be done differently than in the past has provided additional impetus for stakeholders to come together, and the Forum has enjoyed broad provider participation and support. Current Forum priorities include measuring quality, adopting patient-centered medical homes, leveraging health information technology, and improving consumer access to health information
